One of the perennial sides in the lowest tier of the league, Hartlepool's first meeting with Swindon didn't come until 1968, when they ventured out of the Fourth Division for the first time. The 0-0 draw was notable only for an injury to Town stalwart John Trollope - a broken arm ending a run of 368 consecutive appearances - the injury later threatening to keep Trollope out of the Town's League Cup winning side.

After that season, with the Town promoted to Division Two, the two sides didn't meet again until the eighties, when Swindon were relegated to Division Four for the first time. Bizarrely, Hartlepool's first victory over the Town came in the 1985/86 championship winning season, the 1-0 defeat late in September leaving Swindon in 21st position, fourteen points behind leaders Colchester, and showing little sign of the success that was to follow.

It was to be seventeen years before the two sides would meet again in the League, after Hartlepool's promotion from the Third Division into the Second in 2003. Going into the final game of the 2003/04 season, a draw at the County Ground would be enough to secure both sides a place in the play-offs - and after a Sammy Igoe opener for the Town, Adam Boyd equalised for United. Unfortunately, both Swindon and Hartlepool were knocked out at the semi-final stage - and two years later, both clubs dropped back into the fourth tier again.
